Your hosts, Diana Morris and Wayne Lamphier, are from Calgary Canada but they've been living in the Peruvian Andes for the past ten years and much of the past 18 years.  
Wayne was involved in developing the first park management plan for Huascarán National Park, pioneering a community and public consultation program when he fell in love with the Cordillera Blanca Mountains and its people.  
After spending eight years in Colombia and Ecuador, Diana and Wayne moved to Peru in 2003 to build the Lazy Dog Inn, committing themselves to long-term community and environmental support.
